CCTV footage shows Ben Stokes flicking cigarette butt at gay man’s head

Jurors have been shown CCTV footage of England cricketer Ben Stokes involved in an alleged "melee" outside a nightclub with two other men.

Stokes mimicked the "high-pitched" voices of William O'Connor and Kai Barry, two regulars at Mbargo nightclub in Bristol, southwest England, doorman Andrew Cunningham told Bristol Crown Court.

Earlier in the day, the jury were shown body-camera footage from the police officer (PC Stacey Allway) who arrested Stokes and heard from an off-duty police and community support officer who suggested Stokes was "the main aggressor" during the part of the fight he witnessed.

The fight took place several hours after England had played a one-day worldwide against West Indies at the city's County Ground.

"These men were speaking to the gay guys in what I would call a harsh and abusive way", the statement said. He mentioned my gold teeth and he said I looked like a c... and I replied, "Thank you very much". All three men are standing trial and deny affray. I took exception and said "leave it out" and "you shouldn't be taking the piss because they're gay".

Stella McCartney on the quality she shares with friend Meghan Markle
And I think, obviously I am a British designer, but I think being a woman and being a women's woman played a part. But Meghan's choice of dress was more than skin deep, the 46-year-old explained to ELLE .

Mr Spure described seeing Stokes punch Ali, who was trying to get away, with a "clenched fist" in the road.

"As I was on my own, when I separated two of them more people carried on behind me".

"I made a decision to intervene and asked Ryan Ali and Ryan Hale to stop abusing Kai and William". Yesterday, the court heard Stokes bullied the gay revellers, throwing a cigarette at one and making mocking gestures at them.

"I felt the need to defend myself. I got a little frightened so closed the window and went back to bed".

In a statement, Mr Spure said he had tried to separate Mr Stokes and Mr Ali, with the others continuing their behaviour behind him.

Stokes, who was smoking on the evening, allegedly flicked his cigarette butt at O'Connor's head.

Mr Stokes first hit Mr Hale, knocking him to the ground, before rendering Mr Ali unconscious in the punch seen by the PCSO, jurors have been told.

The prosecution has read medical evidence of injuries sustained by Ali and Hale. He was taken to Bristol Royal Infirmary by ambulance and diagnosed as having suffered a fracture to the medial orbital wall on the left side of his face.

Mr Cunningham refused to allow them back inside as it was past closing time, Bristol Crown Court heard.

Disney says its new streaming service won’t rival Netflix
But the Netflix competitor may be missing a big piece of that library when it launches in late 2019. They also have the Netflix name all over them, so it won't be easy for Disney to take them.
